Against the backdrop of a devastating second COVID-19 wave in India, and taking place just a couple of weeks after the EU adoption of Council Conclusions on a Strategy for the Indo-Pacific, the virtual Leaders’ Meeting on May 8th is much awaited. Considered as the main deliverable of the Portuguese EU presidency, it is set to produce important results.
What are the expectations from the European and Indian experts Community?
How do the EU Council Conclusions on a Strategy for the Indo-Pacific fit into the discussion? How the EU and India can work together in this region—on security cooperation, economic cooperation, technology cooperation and supply chain resilience?
What is the Connectivity Partnership expected to be signed and how can it be used as catalyst to implement the common agreed priorities?
These and other questions form the backbone of an online panel discussion on Zoom, open to registered guests and live-streamed for the wider public via YouTube.
The event will be hosted by CEPS and is co-organized with ORF.
